Facebook chooses Nigerian developers for partnership
From OKORO CHINEDU in Lagos, Nigeria
LAGOS, (CAJ News) – A NIGERIAN entertainment platform is reveling at its selection by Facebook, the world’s largest social networking site, as a partner to debut updates to the latter’s social plugins.
Nigerian Entertainment Today (theNETng) has been announced alongside three other local organisations at the 2016 Facebook Developers’ Conference (F8).
The event has just concluded in Fort Mason, San Francisco in the United States.
The NET website, which now sports a revamped new look, is now the first Nigerian entertainment platform with Facebook Quote Sharer functionality.
This enables users to highlight text on the NET website and share directly onto Facebook via an instant on-page plugin.
Officials said this feature would help publishers drive traffic back to their pages, while saving users the stress of capturing screenshots and having to crop out unneeded information.
In addition, NET is now fully integrated with Facebook Instant Articles, becoming one of a very small number of African platforms and the first Nigerian entertainment news publisher to be integrated in this manner.
Facebook announced a similar partnership with other Nigerian organisations like Afrinolly, Jobberman and Vzikoko.
